HULU and Youtube TV both also stopped carrying Fox Regional. I believe the only mainstream provider is AT&T Now.

LOTS of people HAVE been complaining, and a fair number of them dropping their provider and going with AT&T Now. It's definitely hurting their pocketbook. I called to complain/see about options, and the guy said they were getting a fair number of calls like that, from all over the country.

I really don't want to switch provider (to AT&T Now) but I might. But I also think they'll get it figured out. Everybody (except maybe AT&T) losing on it now. Sinclair took a $3.2 Billion write down. That's a lot of incentive to fix it.

And yet, they aren't. None of it has made any difference at all. This has been going on for years now. Once again, Hulu, Youtube, and Sling don't need regional sports to survive.

I just watch on my firestick now with a vpn. Yeah, it sucks to hear opposing team announcers, but that's a small price for not spending 80 a month on something I don't have any use for other than the Mavs.

So ATT sold me a device with AttTV and reassured me several times that fssw was included. A tech brought it to my house and had it connected within 3 hours of ordering. Turns out the rep didnt know wtf he was talking about and fssw was not included. I told the tech to take it back and I was canceling the useless service. I called and complained about the issue and after a cpl hours of speaking to different people, managers supervisors etc they offered me a discount. Instead of the $80 for AttNow streaming, I pay $49. The whole ordeal was a major hassle and the service is in no way worth $80 to me but it ended up working out in the end as I now pay less than YouTube TV.

Honestly, I feel like TV service is a thing of the past. I wouldn't be happy even paying $49. If you are, then I am happy for you though. I just want a service that lets me watch all of the Mavericks games, season long, including the playoffs and All-Star weekend. Yes, I want that, specifically. I don't watch any other television so I find it to be useless.

Until frontier or one of the more affordable streamers offer FSSW, i have a personal VPN with the server in mexico. I purchase a one day pass for $1.07 while on the VPN. This seems to work even when I’m on my iPad with location services off. You can do this using a paid VPN like nordvpn or cyberghost and use a foreign vpn.

Reportedly, Sinclair is planning to offer the fox sports regional networks as a standalone service in partnership with Bally. This would indicate that sports betting may be linked to the service. It should be operational this spring.

Sinclair is in the works for a partnership with Bally to offer a standalone streaming service for the fox sports regional networks. Thatís apparently why they are not all that interested in negotiating with the streaming or cable networks. They are planning on this spring for a rollout.

At&t streaming service getting axed. So your only real choices now are spectrum or at&t with boxes.

I have been able to watch every Mavs game with my firestick, so if anyone wants the link to the video on how to do it, just let me know. Easy to find on youtube as well. Now, there are a few NBA games where all of the links are broken, but that is rare. Been able to watch every Mavs game.
